Elon Musk Via Twitter: Panasonic Is Sole Battery Supplier For Model 3, S & X
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to clear up conflicting reports on who will supply battery cells for the Tesla Model 3.
Reports have claimed that Samsung SDI could potentially supply cells for the Model 3, but Musk fully disputes those claims, stating that Panasonic is/will be the sole supplier of battery cells for the Model 3, as well as for the Model S and Model X.
If what Musk says is true, then that massive quantity of Samsung SDI cells that Tesla took delivery of recently must be for Tesla Energy products, as we suggested when we broke the news.
So, Panasonic cells for Tesla automobiles and Samsung SDI cells for energy storage products seems to be the choice Tesla has made.
